Today is the 2nd Annual International TableTop Day! If you’ve not been following our Tumblr, you may have missed our second annual 12 Days of TableTop Day. Fear not! As with last year, I’m going to give you a compiled list of our recommended games from this year!
I’ll include a bit about the game and why we like it, too! A number of these games have apps as well, and this is a great way to get into a number of games on the cheap, or to see if you like them! On to the games!

I’ve been saying for a while now that I need to write this post, and so the time is now. Because we’ve hit yet another example. Because one by one, the Indexes are going away.
Where are the Indexes going?
400 page strategy guide. Want to guess whether it has an Index?
By which I mean, the Index section of books. What I’ve been running into has been with gaming materials. So, disappearing from the end of board game rules. Disappearing from the end of strategy guides. When you’re going to take the time to produce a large, written document like this, for people to turn to as a reference, you need an Index! You’re competing with the Internet, and if you make your products hard to use, you will lose people. And they will turn to free alternatives online.
So I’ve seen a few examples, so let me talk you through them, and why it annoys me so!
